Since leaving office, Clapper has quickly become one of our most popular speakers on cyber security. A recent client wrote that Clapper’s presentation kept their audience “completely engaged the entire time,” as he offered a privileged look inside the U.S. intelligence community’s biggest pain points, all told with his signature straight-shooting professionalism and sarcasm. | See more on Dir.

He is the only official who was with both President Bush on September 11th and President Obama on May 1st, when Osama Bin Laden was brought to justice--during a raid in which Morell had been integral in planning. According to the Wall Street Journal, he has “been at the center of nearly every fight against al Qaeda and has seen the limits of US intelligence." In an age where the intelligence community has never been more important to national security, Morell offers audiences a debrief on the current state of our intelligence capabilities as well as how cyber fits into our relationships with Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea and the role of cyber operations in war. | See more on Dir.
